Windy Point (about twenty miles south of Anchorage along the Seward Highway)
Anchorage Municipality, AK
Warm and sunny with temperatures in the mid sixties but with very strong wind. So strong that wildflowers, grass, and bushes were whipped around and blown flat against the ground. I looked for any butterflies in warm, sunlit spots that were somewhat protected from the buffeting wind and only found two tiger swallowtails. Both were clinging to bushes and getting blown around roughly.
